Lace Murex and Olives

Lace Murex and Olives

Last week I found a large Lace Murex in really good shape. (The largest I have personally found.) The Olives have been showing some unique markings and a pleasure to find. You never know what the sea will wash your way.

I have been a Shelling Guide to Cayo Costa State Park since 1995. Many people know me as the Shelling Guide and Captain with Captiva Cruises over the past 20 years. In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.

    Beautiful olives and really nice murex! My only really nice lace murex washed right up between my feet, right alongside my only junonia. As you say, you never know what she's gonna give you!
